The desperate final days of a domestic worker in Lebanon

Faustina Tay's body was discovered in a car park under her employers' fourth-storey home in Beirut.

The manner of Tay's death is not uncommon in Lebanon, a country with about 250,000 domestic workers. Two die each week, according to the country's General Security intelligence agency, with many falling from high buildings during botched escape attempts, or in cases that are ruled suicides.

Tay's case sheds light on the type of abuse that ends with many returning to their families in coffins.
